Toronto’s dream pop trio Selfoss – comprised of Rodi Dhjaku (guitar, vocals), Reven Grajner (keys, vocals), and Lilian Gessner (drums) –
Synth, percussion, and immediately you’re feeling like a badass. There’s actually a chance you stepped into a more modern world of Mario, and you’re on your way to battle. (“I think I’ll take you on” is really what got us to this point in our imaginations.) But the song can either be a source of badassery, or it’s the diary of a cold blooded killer. (See: “Sniper”) But, in all actuality, it’s a love song.
Nope. We’re not kidding.
“Despite being called ‘Sniper’, the song takes a listener through a spiritual journey in search of love and happiness,” explains Selfoss. “Just like a trained sniper takes their spot and waits for days to take the perfect shot, the song touches on the subject of loneliness while waiting for the perfect person. We let so many opportunities for love and happiness go by waiting for that perfect person. And when the chance to meet that person presents itself, just like a sniper, we have one shot to capture the moment and make that person ours.”
And with the slow tempo and vibey feel, the love aspect does translate well.
“Sniper” will be included on Selfoss’ debut EP Time and Time Again, out late 2016. Keep up with them on Facebook and find all their music here.
